When you come down from the frozen north east to this beach, you just melt at the site of the blue water and white sand! Sure there's better beaches, so they say..... this beach is wide with plenty of room, the drop off edge is where I like to be. Love to hear the waves crashing. I'll be back for sure!!!!!

We spent a lovely day, sunning, reading, walking and relaxing on this delightful stretch of the ocean. It was never busy and was a very pleasant experience. The public facilities are good and well maintained. It advertises itself as ‘the Real Florida’. I’ll buy that!

Hollywood Broardwalk

This 2.5-mile pedestrian promenade is crowded with joggers, skaters and cyclists with seaside cafes perfect for sitting, resting and people-watching. Or, if you’re feeling the need for speed, rent some wheels from one of the rental spots and join the crowd.

Reviewed By Christine D - West Greenwich, Rhode Island

This boardwalk features restaurants shops, hotels, motels... It's a sensory overload experience, watching bikes go by, rollerbladers, rental large bicycles, walkers, Entertainment and more. All this while looking at the beautiful Hollywood Beach. The boardwalk is very well-maintained and it's quite beautiful, both during the day and at night when the lanterns are on. So many diverse restaurants, many with entertainment. It's a fun place to stroll and people watch

Secret Woods Nature Center

Reviewed By sdms82 - Plantation, Florida

Visited this past Sunday morning with the family. The boardwalk path was a great length for my 4-year-old to walk herself and she got a kick at seeing the manatees at the mid-point on the river. There was even a play area set aside with digging tools so the kids could get their hands dirty. Once we were done with the boardwalk path, we tried for the mulched path, but it was closed-off part way. We look forward to when that re-opens. Once we were done with walking, we headed back to the monarch center where my 4yo had fun coloring and exploring. A very nice way of spending a couple hours of quality family time.

Intracoastal Waterway

Navigate the canals that have earned Fort Lauderdale its nickname, "Venice of America."

Reviewed By Allen21096 - Chicago, Illinois

We happened to be on the Intracoastal Waterway (aka the ICW or I.C.W.) just before sunset. The scenery on the ICW changes constantly with different boats around you. There are many bars and restaurants along the ICW where you can dock your boat and go ashore to eat or have a cocktail. The skyline is ever-changing as are the sunsets. It would be a fun trip to take a tour boat along the ICW to learn more about the different buildings, homes or the history of the ICW.

Anne Kolb Nature Center

Reviewed By Shivcharan V - Southend On Sea

This beautiful park is named after the former commissioner Ann Colb who was very passaionate about saving some green spaces in Ft Lauderdale. There is no entrance fees or any other charges except five dollars for the boat ride.
There is an exhibit area which is very educational and a short film is shown at intervals.
There is a lift going up to the Observation Tower which has panaramic views across the park showing how much construction has taken place over the years.
The walking trails are very interesting built around the different types of mangrove trees growing in the marshes. There are seating areas all along the trails for rest and relaxation.
Weather permitting, there is a short boat ride across the lake to take the visitors on a learning journey.

Ocean Park Beach

Reviewed By imosamchoon - Denver, Colorado

Their Parking payment machine is a real scam. It is supposed to be $2/hr, but it will automatically charge you $4, assuming you are going to stay for 2 hours. Some of their machines do not dispense receipts. So if you walk away from your car to the other side of the parking lot to find another one, a parking officer is just waiting for that to happen. They know about this machine or they would not just fine people parking near it. While you are far away he will come and issue a $43 citation. It does not matter if you paid after the fact. He will tell you to go ahead and appeal it. The appeal is a joke. It's a form and it is all the same. You will end up paying or they will send it to collection doubling the fine. If you are a tourist, avoid this beach at all costs. I'll never set foot in this state again. And parking is not only a scam in Dania. Miami Beach and Miami are just the same.
